Absolutly wonderfull post, answered all and more of what I was after, thanks!! The coax connection also seems to benefit from a good 75ohm cable I used the Kimber Silver ilnn Any old toslink cable will do ; If you can get a used unit, you can send the serial number to Linn and they can tell you exactly what spec the unit is, upgrades etc I also have an AV plus their 5 channel amp and speakers and an SB3 and it sounds fine.

I would not replace mine unless it died unlikely – I’ve owned lots and lots of Linn gear for over 25 years and NEVER lost a unit – excluding ‘Barik tweeters of course The ONLY thing I don’t like about the is the stupid “dead flesh” buttons on the front panel – they ,inn not av5013 instantaneous and you often end up pressing them twice.

I’ve heard similarly configured Naim lin units and whilst they are certainly alternative choices I wouldn’t swap. My Linn dealer told me that as a stereo preamp it is better than the majik LK ljnn, kolektor and kairn, but the newer ones are better. I have named input1 “squeez” and on the remote it is associated with the ‘DAT’ button. Inputs associated with physical connectors can be named as you want, then associated with a ‘source button’ on the remote.


Anyone played with a Linn AV ? [Archive] – Squeezebox : Community : Forums

Initially I was thinking of shifting from my Arcam AV to a stereo pre, a5v103, I think I will keep my eyes open just to see if a bargin priced turns up There is a myth that Linn gear only works with other Linn gear. I have the final spec dts version.

I was thinking of upgrading to a Kisto so if you want to make me an offer for mine DTS plus blue display in silver,still under warranty just! It replaced a Linn Kairn. It has coax 3 I think from memory and one toslink digital inputs. However, the can be daunting to setup which you only do once – if you need help just mail me.

I’d say it was as good the SB3 analogue out – or so close as to make no difference. So other family members probably won’t know which buttons are assigned where.

Oh, and later models have a tweakable “Limbik” 5. It’s a corker of a 2-channel pre-amp used with good analogue sources and a great AV lin for 5.

The does NOT have 5. Hiya, Have heard good things about these things, and just wondered if you have ever heard or owned one.

Linn AV 5103 Pre Amp

Hope this helps, Regards Phil. As an AV amp it is superb – only 5.

Hi Deaf Cat, I have used a as my system controller for liinn last 5 years. I few dealers, have av503 2nd hand, ebay has one at the mo, and still new end of line in Aus and Ireland as far as I can work out.


I’d be interested to put higher bit rates than Have heard very good things about theespecially the pre-amp side of it, hence the intrest, two birds with one stone – possibly – dac and pre.

Whilst true of some older equipment esp. I presume yo are looking at a used model the was discontinued – make sure it is dts capable if you wan’t to use AV Cheers Deaf Cat – happy to help if I can. Err don’t quite know where the 2 years have gone, still have pretty much the same set up, apart form a new power cable and 6 iso feet The remote is old-fashioned but still very strong.

Manuals – AV 5103

Thanks again for the wonderfull post and usefull information!! Overall I really like my AV – I bought lijn so cheaply that any shortcoming on the video side are irrelevant to me.

Setting up the AV is a pain. Anyone played with a Linn AV? Obviously I’m biased and you should try it out for yourself. Like Phil, mine is a DTS spec model and the front panel buttons are hard to press but they do still work. However, I only ever use the remote whose buttons are more positive but the delay is still there.
